Alternative Winter Break 2016 Post Blast from the Past – Hurricane Sandy 2012

By Year Round Programs

Today, we helped out at Occupy Sandy, a group of people from all over America, to organize and assist in the distribution of food and supplies to victims of Superstorm Sandy.

Occupy Sandy was hit hard earlier this week, losing three of their tents, so it was crucial that we helped out to set up and reorganize the tents.  We did a variety of things, such as building tents, serving food, distributing and organizing supplies, and cleaning up the site.

Following our work, we toured a few streets of the local neighborhood, made our way down to the beach, and saw all the true devastate of the storm.  Overall, today’s trip was very meaningful, yet at the same time enjoyable; we all walked away with a great sense of pride, knowing we made a difference for many people.
